    Well Ziegler just lost my vote in the future. I assume he must be a Moore supporter. I may have to actually stoop to voting for a democrat in future if that’s only choice against Ziegler.

    TRUMP likes Luther, it’s true because I heard Luther say so himself maybe a dozen or more times,Thursday evening, even bragged the Vice President was coming Monday, McConnell and the GOP has spent a ton of money on Strange,it’s a pity that it maybe wasted. Strange will not answer direct questions about his appointment to the Senate by Bentley ever wonder why? perhaps it was a shady deal. I think so, perhaps we should fact check all the remarks made by the big one, he is an automatic yes vote for any thing McConnell and Trump wants. vote Roy Moore.
